I had a PRO 4....Great car, hands down.....but I am in US, racing indoor carpet and outdoor as well. I have to say, the PRO 4 are better running outdoor, rubber or foams, stock, 19T or MOD are just as good...
I used the PRO 4 with 8T V2 running outdoor foams and rubber....car was just great. And the main reason I pick Pro 4......cause I am in US, getting HPI parts from Tower or any local hobby shop is just as easy as getting AE parts.
However, getting YOKOMO parts here....almost impossilbe, or at least, I cannot just go to the shop and pick up, always need to rely on mail order and internet, which I am not prefer.
The best deal...buy a new one, and look for a used one ($150-200 tops) with options for parts..........a lot of ppl running these car on carpet all the time, so their Pro 4 are very new and not damage, just need to spot one.
